Very bright fireball caught on camera over Texas, sonic boom reported

A very bright meteor was caught on camera over Texas at 03:25 UTC on November 16 (21:25 CDT, November 15). The object was seen for about 3 to 7 seconds and was followed by a sonic boom.

It was primarily seen from Texas but was also seen from Louisiana and Oklahoma, the American Meteor Society said.

They have so far received 95 reports. 9 people said they heard delayed sound and 6 concurrent. 11 reported fragmentation.

Some of the reports mention the windows-rattling sonic boom. The whole sky in the area of Granada Hills in Southwest Austin, Hamilton Pool road and Wimberly was lit up, another witness said.
